Game 142 Thread: Sept. 11 @ D'backs, 6:30p

Clayton Kershaw (12-8, 2.79) vs. Ian Kennedy (12-11, 4.39).

The bruised and battered Dodgers take a quick jaunt to the desert for two games against those pesky Snakes before returning home for a four-game series against the Cardinals. Clayton Kershaw, who apparently has a sore hippy hippy shake, was the hard-luck loser last time he faced Ian Kennedy. Matt Kemp may or may not play tonight. The Giants stuck a fork in the Dodgers on Sunday; will the Diamondbacks stick a forked tongue in them tonight?

UPDATE: Via @Dodgers:

Also, Dee, Elian, and Fife are back.

Orel said...

It's like a reunion!

Eugenio's Streak said...

it's an awkward reunion, like when old gf and new gf meet!

Eugenio's Streak said...

It also says that AK went down with a pulled groin injury, Urine had a pulled pork injury, but can still sit on the bench just fine!

Hollandsworth said...

i'll be watching fervently hoping that we can win a freaking series against a team in our division.

Hideo Nomo said...

Holy shit, the Dodgers have been playing .500 ball since July 1. (But .393 in June.)

Hollandsworth said...

we've really been playing .500 ball? it feels like we've been playing mid-00's Royals level ball since the break.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's because that other team went on an unholy tear.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Rockies up 1-0 over the SF Penis Pumps in the third.

Cliff Beefpile said...

4-0 Rox, although they did just leave the bases loaded in the bottom of the 3rd.

Also, Reds up on the Pirates and the Brewers are up on Atlanta.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Bumfucker just homered and tied up the game. There is no God.

Hideo Nomo said...

Aw, shit.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Uh my gawd. Ian Kennedy isn't that good! Score some runs, assholes!

Ñeeebs said...

Die, die, die...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Colorado is now dead to me. The whole state. DEAD.

Hideo Nomo said...

Phew, still not losing.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Phew.

Hideo Nomo said...

AGon homer here.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dammit.

Hideo Nomo said...

That was foul?

Hideo Nomo said...

Hanley better do something with this.

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 6-5. I hate the Giants.

Steve Sax said...

No really, I HATE the Giants.

Steve Sax said...

hateHateHATE

Hideo Nomo said...

That so not Cora, Hanley.

Hollandsworth said...

despite that good AB, Hanley's stuck out 21 times in the last 16 games. and he's hitting dangerously close to the Mendoza line over that same time frame.

hopefully Ethier cancels all that out with a HR here.

Hideo Nomo said...

TEST PAGAN GODDAMMIT.

Looper might be a cool movie, but I can't get past how dumb "30 years from now, the mob will control time travel" sounds.

Cliff Beefpile said...

30 years from now might be when the Dodgers score their next run.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is a dandy of a pickle of a humdinger.

Orel said...

I see the Dodger bats have picked up where they left off.

Hideo Nomo said...

Can't catch a break. Kemp doubles, then Hanley check-swing-bunt-fucks-up.

Hideo Nomo said...

Cool beans, Padres!

Orel said...

Pads are softening up the Cards for us.

Hollandsworth said...

nice throw, Hanley. -__-

the Pavlovian bell of failure is beginning to toll.

Cliff Beefpile said...

How depressing is it that the Padres are playing way better baseball than the Dodgers right now.

Orel said...

Kershaw gives up his run.

Cliff Beefpile said...

It's 1-0 and it already feels over. I'm starting to hate this team.

Orel said...

A.J. caught the ball!

karina said...

epale everyone!

Orel said...

Epale, Karina! Everything on schedule?

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

Well hello, Noffense (TM).

Orel said...

It's happening again. Dodgers missing XBH by inches, and their hard-hit line drives are hit right at guys.

Orel said...

Dee!

karina said...

@Orel it seems so...however i just discovered i have problems to part with my heels :(

Orel said...

Gordon doesn't steal. A.J. hits into a DP. Wow.

Orel said...

I hope you mean leaving shoes behind and not a foot injury.

Dusty Baker said...

Orel has the same issue, Karina.

Orel said...

Punto, Mellis and Victorino due up for us in the ninth. It's gonna be great!

NicJ said...

Lakers/Kings can't get here soon enough.

The only thing I'm looking forward to that invokes the Dodgers is rookie hazing photos.

Dusty Baker said...

Is that Big Fork, then, Nic?

NicJ said...

I forked them 6 weeks ago.

Orel said...

Nice defensive save by Hanley.

NicJ said...

I lied actually, I'm also looking forward to the potential release of stafium upgrade announcements.

Dusty Baker said...

I Forked Neeebs' mom.

NicJ said...

satfium?! Where the fuck were you on that one, auto-correct?

Cliff Beefpile said...

After reading that L.A. Times article yesterday, I wonder if the Dodgers' long-term goals are to build a new stadium downtown.

Orel said...

I would think we would need to know the fate of Farmers Field before worrying about a new Dodger Stadium.

Orel said...

PACO

Dusty Baker said...

DS isn't going anywhere. They're going to continue building a team and getting butts back in seats.

Orel said...

Love the confidence of this kid. Starts off with two 91 mph fastballs for strikes. No nibbling around.

Orel said...

Three-pitch K!

Dusty Baker said...

Only a new Gangnam Style can help me through this pain:

Awesome wedding video set to OGS by a couple in SF.

Orel said...

The stars are aligned for the Dodgers to take the NL West crown? I think not, outdated Dodgers commercial.

Orel said...

No Putz?

Cliff Beefpile said...

The stars were aligned, but they haven't followed astrology since dumping the McCourts' Russian psychic.

Orel said...

V ENERGY

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck. Losing is bad enough, this team is as dull as a beige room.

Orel said...

Another foul by inches.

Orel said...

Vic double!

Orel said...

Time to disappoint us once again, A-Gon.

karina said...

"it's incredible how the Dodgers swallow zero after zero"

-Jaime Jarrin

Hollandsworth said...

for the love of all that is rich and delicious, DO SOMETHING GONZALEZ.

Orel said...

Lotsa zero swallowing going on.

Ñeeebs said...

I remember 300 post GT. Good old days

Orel said...

Disappointment? Check.

Steve Sax said...

Criminy.

Hollandsworth said...

break out the scotch, guys. time to wipe out another dull, noffense-riddled abomination from our collective consciousness.

Dusty Baker said...

PGT up
